Russia’s Foreign Minister Just Issued A Dire Warning To US And Allies: Back Off Or WWIII Will Begin – enVolve

The United States pressed allies to further ramp up military support for Ukraine on Tuesday, as the Kremlin once again warned of the “real” danger of World War III.

That isn’t propaganda. World War III is a very real possibility.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin pledged to “move heaven and earth” to help Kyiv win the war as he opened a meeting of NATO defense officials at a U.S. Air Force base in Germany, according to NBC News.

His comments spurred a response from Russia.

“The risk is serious, real. It should not be underestimated,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a Russian state-television interview broadcast Monday night. “Under no circumstances should a third world war be allowed to happen,” he said, adding that “there can be no winners in a nuclear war.” Mr. Lavrov said the West was increasing the risk of a bigger conflict by providing arms to Ukraine: “NATO is, in essence, going to war with Russia through a proxy and arming that proxy”, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Lloyd Austin said the Russian foreign minister’s WWIII rhetoric is ‘dangerous’ and ‘unhelpful’ , Fox News reports.
